5 out of 5 eggsBest ssd I have ever owned

Pros: The best ssd I owned .
Very fast.
flawless never ever froze .
Great as a raid0 ssd. I have owned intel x25-e 32gb, intel x25-e 64gb, intel x25-m 80gb first and second gen intel x25-m 160gb first and second gen. patriot inferno 200gb vertex 1 64gb vertex 2 128gb corsair x-64. this is better in every way except price and size.

Cons: price and size.

Other Thoughts: Make this drive in three sizes:

and charge a decent price. it has been years why can't someone do this. I have stopped all ownership of ssd's until Intel comes out with the 3rd gen postville refresh i will grab a 600gb and test it out. this is some slow moving tech (all ssd's in general)

3 out of 5 eggsToo Small for Windows 7

Pros: You already know....

Cons: Due to Windows winsxs file duplication within the OS, you will not have ANY room on this drive after 1 or 2 years.

The 'basic' OS load and normal day-2-day applications are too much for a 32GB drive on Windows 7.

Other Thoughts: All user-data, all VM's, Office, large program-installs, games, files, media, music etc is NOT on the OS drive. It is all loaded on a 2tb (4x500gb raid 0) 'drive'.
Even with these changes/modifications to the standard operation(s) of Windows, 32(29)GB is just too small. Plan on getting 2, or going for the 64GB unless you plan on frequent re-imaging.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD, will work with Sata IDE or AHCI!

Pros: It's a nice SSD from Intel, improved write speeds over the X25-M SSD's I own (2 80gb in RAID / 1 120gb). Now, as for people stating these drives will not work in "Sata IDE" mode, that is COMPLETELY FALSE. Read the FACTS PEOPLE! AHCI mode only benefits this drive on "one operating system", and that is "Windows 7", and the benefit is "TRIM Support", you can use AHCI mode all you want in Vista/XP, guess what, still no TRIM support. As long as you use the Intel SSD Toolbox and use the SSD Optimizer function "daily" (or more), it gives TRIM functionality, just not at a constant. I've been running the X25-M's in Sata IDE, RAID, and AHCI mode .. they all still work perfectly.

As for the X25-E with SLC, it will withstand even better since SLC memory is does not degrade as quickly.

Cons: Small capacity, Big pricey!

Other Thoughts: Depending on your "motherboard chipset", you just may have to use "Sata IDE" mode, some chipsets do not perform as well as other (performance wise) in AHCI mode as they do in Sata IDE mode, and on others it's just the opposite. On my nVidia nForce 980a SLi I get slightly better performance in AHCI mode, Atto Benchmarks 289334 mb/sec "read", 187998 mb/sec "write with AHCI, with Sata IDE mode 269071 mb/sec "read", 181003 mb/sec "write".. Utimately, AHCI mode will get the best life-span from your SSD, but they work in "ALL 3 MODES" >> RAID, AHCI, and Sata IDE. Like I said, just use the utility Intel provides. Alot of SSD Drives don't even have "TRIM" support and are still running just fine, if you use RAID 0, you get no TRIM support no matter what OS you use. Just because someone had their SSD drives die in Sata Mode, they start saying "You must use AHCI" mode. That's a big negative! Remember, AHCI benefits you with ONLY "Windows 7" which allows TRIM functionality.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive Dies Fast And Intel Support Useless

Pros: While working the Intel X25-E Extreme was very fast in OS load times (XP SP3) and for what we were doing with it. We purchased to use in radiologist workstations to improve cache speeds in our PACS application. It did that and made huge studies scroll very smoothly.

Cons: The drive died within a couple of months. Our company went to Intel for RMA. (Does state a 3 year warranty.) Intel has been giving our I.T. dept many hassles and has not issued an RMA after over 2 months since it died.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend staying away from any Intel SSD. OK, a drive could die within 2 months and just that one drive be bad. But when the manufacturer will not honor their own warranty they are not worth doing business with and need to be warned about. We were researching as planning to purchase over a dozen of these but now are looking at other companies with better customer service. Unfortunately we were past the Newegg 60 days so had to go back to the manufacturer.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: See benchmarks.

Cons: See price.

Other Thoughts: Ignore the "read/write speeds" advertised by manufacturers! Find benchmarks from reputable sources.

Seriously, some MLC drives that claim "100+ MB/s writes" actually clock in under 20. The spec exaggerations get that bad.

There's a reason this drive is so pricey - unlike typical MLC drives that manufacturers over-hype, this drive lives up to its specs.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor performance after use.

Pros: The X25-E drives are extremely fast when new and have a much longer operational life than MLC drives. Intel has good wear leveling to extend life of the drive.

Cons: These rapidly deteriorate in performance once all cells have been written to, it won't take long if you are doing big sequential writes as I am using them as high speed scratch disks and temporary work areas for large images. At this point they really suck with few options to refresh their cells, especially if you don't want to lose the data.

Other Thoughts: Win 7 trim option doesn't work. Intel's toolbox optimizer doesn't work. Intel doesn't seem to want to fix that. Only way I know to fix is to use secure erase which loses all data.
No prob on temp or scratch disks but to do it you must enter bios, change ACHI to IDE drives, be sure SSD is on 1-4 sata port , erase and then reverse in bios. Too much to do so often if this is a production unit and operators are not computer knowledgeable. In my opinion Intel should not be selling these drives without full disclosure of the above limitations.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW!

Pros: Got the "smart event" on my laptop in raid o. Purchased two of these drives and installed them on my dell m1730.After uploading windows 7 64 bit onto them I did the performance test to see if they helped the laptops performance. The drives rated 7.9, 2 nvidia in sli rated 7 ,windows aero 7 ,memory 6.5 and processor 6.5.It is blazing fast.Very impressive performance.

Cons: Price. Oh well,the best does garner a premium.

4 out of 5 eggsWorking Great

Pros: Very very Fast, and works great

Cons: Space available, but that was known in buying the drive, that you can't put much on it other then the OS and a couple apps. Also the drive is tiny and I have to just lay it on another hard drive, but runs cool, does not generate much heat at all.
